2009 ford mustang v6, standard, will not accelerate, no matter in which gear I am in why?

Hello, I am having a rather alarming issue. My car will not accelerate, it will rev up into the high 6s and it slowly starts to move. It does not matter which gear i am, from 1st to 5th and it won't pick up any faster. It was running fine, until I got on the highway and i noticed it was slowly loosing power, so i tried shifting down and it wouldn't pick up. So it slowly went down to 20mph and held around there, i exited the highway and i was able to get slowly back up to 20mph. Further down the road i stopped to check the obvious in the engine bay, even disconnected the battery and then the car wouldn't accelerate, it would have to rev up rather high and then very slowly start to accelerate. This problem as stated started today, yesterday I went on a 100 or so mile drive and notice some amount of slipping the clutch, so I figured the clutch would be needed to be changed soon, but I didn't expect this within 24 hours. Can anyone help me to narrow down whats causing this issue? 2009 Ford Mustang V6, Stick Shift. 84,000 miles Running perfectly fine up until maybe 3-4 days ago, then slowly noticed the clutch seemed to start slipping. In addition there is a burning clutch smell even though i am not doing anything abnormal when shifting. thank you in advance for any input!

Sorry old son but your clutch sounds like it has gone to the big junk yard in the sky reserved for dead clutches . When a clutch starts to slip it will continue to do so until that is all it will do . solution a new clutch is required .

you need to have your key reprogrammed. even a plain spare key will set off the alarm if it does not have a chip programmed with the same code as the anti theft system.
